"While Lexus may score a few style points (I purchased a 2011 460 GS), I was pleased with the Escalade's superior ride after eight years. What has been a pleasant surprise is the SUV's durability and reliability. Granted, I have always had the car serviced at the dealership, but except for routine maintenance, it has had 0 problems. (Very unusual in a. Cadillac--I had had a boat back Seville and the first model year STS, both of which were mechanical nightmares)"
"Have had this vehicle since June 2003. It looks as good as a 2014 Escalade. Replaced the Radio with a Pioneer 3500 with XM, CD, etc in 2013. One minor drawback (typical with Cadillac Escalades) is something is drawing the battery down. This has been going on for several years before the new radio system was installed. I plug it in to battery tender every other night in winter and once a week in other times. It would be a 10 if the battery problem did not exist."
"Best car ever. I don't want to ever drive anything but this. It practically drives itself. My husband & I & our 3 kids drove to California and back. Straight through. We were all comfortable and I had no problems driving a 10 hour shift. Amazingly comfortable and fun to drive."
Pros: "Great SUV in better shape than the years should be"
Cons: "One running light needs replaced and a driving lt"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"This has been my wife's car and she really likes it. We are selling because we don't need it any more. It has never been a problem and have always kept it serviced. We bought it new in 04 and it has always been a second car, the mileage shows it."
"I've purchased this new and have had no issues other than regular maintenance. Super comfortable and roomy interior. Two features that I wish this had is a power tailgate and bluetooth. It averages 15MPG for overall driving (mostly around town)"
"My 2004 Escalade has been a show piece and head turner from day one, awesome to drive, has lots of bells and whistles.
Downside: poor gas mileage (11 MPG), and unbelievably expensive to fix. Example: one headlight went out. Cost to replace $1300 !!!!!
Would not buy again based on cons above"
